Through Ring Rolling, we can optimize issue weight to make it almost equal to the final weight.
Ring Rolling is mainly used for parts with a long interior hole that would mean a considerable loss by other technologies. This way, we can assure great savings by avoiding machining (and losing material) after forging process.
In metalworking, rolling is a metal forming process in which metal stock is passed through one or more pairs of rolls to reduce the thickness and to make the thickness uniform with a bigger diametre.
Applications of ring rolling process could be: Flanges, Mast flanges for wind turbines, Wheel tyres, Weld-on parts for steel structures, Bearing bushes, Reinforcement rings, Ball valves, Rope pulleys, Gear sprockets and Synchronizer rings mainly.
Besides material reduction, Ring Rolling allows shaped walls along with mechanical advantages such as hardening through cold process.
